We have spoken at length about the importance of data governance, technology and process in your journey towards legal project management at scale. And while all these elements are crucial, there’s another, often overlooked element that plays an equally important role: firm culture.
Join us for this exclusive webinar on Wednesday, September 1st at 9 AM PDT/ 12 PM EDT/ 5 PM BST/ 6 PM CEST, where we will explore different ways you can influence your firm's culture to effectively embrace the roll out of new services. We will be joined by co-panelists, Jessica Gichner, Chief Value and Solutions Officer at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, and James Barrett, Senior Legal Project Manager at Eversheds Sutherland. The session will be moderated by Pieter van der Hoeven, Co-founder at Clocktimizer.
During this 45-minute webinar, we will explore questions as:
✔️ How can you use your scaled LPM and full matter lifecycle support as a unique selling point when engaging with new clients?
✔️ Which metrics can be shared internally to quantify the firm's gains from legal project management?
✔️ How do you pick the wins to share and celebrate?
✔️ How do you ensure time-keepers know about the offered services, and more importantly, follow process to acquire them?
